Groomer’s Report

Monday, February 4, 2019

Weather and Snow: -22C, few cm of new snow, total snowpack height variable but around 2 meters.

Groomed: Morrissey Trail, Doug Dean Trail, Summit Trail, road building from Rolling Hills Cabin down to Paige’s Draw. Please note that we have the green light to commence re-building the snowroad down to Coal Creek; however, there is substantial debris and large rocks which are prohibiting efforts to groom the trail. Traveling on Coal Creek via snowmobile is not recommended at this time. We will continue to monitor and work towards a solution. Please note that Coal Creek staging area is also home to a substantial amount of slash pile blocking / limiting any parking or staging options at this time.

Weather and Snow: -17C, moderate to strong winds, 0cm new snow overnight, 32cm in the last 48 hours, snowpack heights variable around 210cm.

Groomed: Morrissey Trail (regular grooming plus some additional clean up), Doug Dean Trail, Summit Trail, Notch. Corbin groomed yesterday (-23C this AM).

Coal Creek: please note that we are working to rebuild the staging area and trail to Paige’s Draw – heavy equipment is currently operating to delicately blade in the snowbanks and sift out debris in preparation for grooming operations. A reminder that it is illegal to snowmobile on a plowed forest service road in BC. We would like to ask that sledders DO NOT travel in this area or park your vehicles on the road as we cannot build the snow road if people or vehicles are in the way.

Weather and Snow: -4C, no new snow, total snowpack around 180cm.

Groomed: Morrissey Trail, Doug Dean Trail, Summit Trail, Notch, McEvoy East to Pipeline Extension. New trailname signs added.

Coal Creek Update: Private land owner has advised they have completed timberharvesting activities and we have the green light to commence road building for snowmobiles / snowcat. Please note that it is illegal to snowmobile on a plowed forest service road in BC and that we will have our heavy equipment working through the remainder of the week to delicately blade in the banks and get the trail installed – we know you are excited but please give us a few more days to complete this work without the added challenge of working around additional traffic (we can’t build a snow road it if means plowing in a truck / trailer that has parked up the road!). We appreciate your cooperation.
